What's the more maintainable alternative? Is writing repeated constructs etc out individually really more maintainable, or are you referring to other ways of getting these things reduced?

I highly recommend taking a look at the AWS CDK. It's a relatively new project, still in beta and hasn't gotten a lot of attention yet. It allows you to use real programming languages to generate Cloudformation templates. In my eyes this is the best of both worlds.

Just plain terraform modules, for now.

I’m eagerly awaiting 0.12 so the language would have similar features as jinja templating.
